All things Green Man & the traditional Jack-in-the-Green

Winchcombe Jack-in-the-Green 2014

Winchcombe Jack 2013

The Winchcombe (Gloucestershire) Jack in the Green went out at 5:40am this morning to greet the Dawn.

The picture above is from 2013, I would be very grateful if anyone with pictures from this year could let me know.

Jack will also be at Upton on Severn on Sunday May 4th, and meeting with the Sweeps Jack from Cheltenham at Sudeley Castle Winchcombe on Monday May 5th.

The Winchcombe Jack was revived in 2009 as part of “Marking the Year.” A Jack was recorded as visiting a local school by Emma Dent of Sudeley Castle in the 1890’s.
